Message from the Interim Dean

Dear Chicago Booth Faculty and Staff,

During the past year we have all worked hard to sustain the school’s momentum on a number of fronts, most notably in the strength of our faculty, our MBA programs, and alumni engagement.

Our dedicated staff plays an indispensable role in these efforts by creating an environment of trust and empowerment through respect for one another, excellence in their work, and integrity in their actions. Through these Booth values we create an “Impact” that leaves an extraordinary legacy on the world.

Now in their fourth year, the Booth Impact Awards recognize outstanding staff members and teams whose contributions exemplify these Booth values. Starting Monday, May 8, staff members are encouraged to submit nominations on behalf of a colleague or team who they feel exemplifies these core values. The nomination window will close at 11:59 p.m. CST on June 30, and the winners will be announced at the 2017 Town Hall Meeting, on a date to be determined. 

The deputy deans and I look forward to reviewing your nominations. Thank you for all of your efforts in further strengthening Chicago Booth.

Doug Skinner
